Milestone for AIR FRANCE KLM - One million passengers from airport Berlin-Tegel

09.12.2013

A significant milestone was reached today at Berlin-Tegel: the annual number of AIR FRANCE KLM passengers hit the one million mark for the first time at a German airport. At precisely 9 a.m., AIR FRANCE KLM surprised its one millionth passenger – Uwe Kaapke from Berlin, who was on his way to Bangkok via Paris – with an Economy voucher for a long-haul flight of his choice.

Christian Herzog, Managing Director of AIR FRANCE KLM Germany: 'We are delighted to be able to welcome the one millionth passenger on our well-established Berlin–Paris route in Air France's 80th anniversary year. Berlin is one of Air France's and KLM's top destinations and one of our most important airports in Germany.'

Hartmut Mehdorn, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: 'One million passengers represent the successful partnership between AIR FRANCE KLM and Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. We are looking forward to expanding our flight schedule in the years to come and hope to continue our successful cooperation.'

Berlin and AIR FRANCE KLM have a long and rich history. The first scheduled flights on the Paris–Berlin route were launched in 1926 by the predecessor company Air France and now make up five a day. As of the 2014 summer flight schedule, flights to Marseilles will also be resumed. Together with the five daily KLM flights to Amsterdam, the holding company is now the fourth-busiest airline operating out of Berlin-Tegel.

Anniversary year with numerous promotions

Air France has been celebrating its 80th anniversary since October 2013. To mark this special occasion, the airline has put together special anniversary packs for its customers. For example, passengers can buy special anniversary items. Furthermore, an Airbus A380 and an Airbus A320 painted in special anniversary livery will be in service until October 2014. AIR FRANCE KLM serves 243 destinations in 103 states worldwide and transports 77 million passengers every year.
